Juvenile Law: Proceedings Before a Referee (Action Required)

Summary

Summary

The Family and Juvenile Law Advisory Committee recommends amending California Rules of Court, rule 5.538(b)(3), to make the rule consistent with a statutory change to Welfare and Institutions Code section 248, subdivision (b)(1). The amendment would permit a referee’s findings and orders to be personally served in court on a party who is present at the hearing rather than exclusively by mail, as currently provided in the rule.
